Two weeks after Vicki Ann Hunter was murdered in her Raceview home, police are no closer to finding her killer.
Police want to speak to a Caucasian man of average build, between one-sixty and one-seventy centimetres tall, who was wearing a dark t-shirt and dark cargo shorts with a tribal tattoo on his lower left leg.
Steve Riznyk, Acting Detective Inspector: “At this stage we’re running a number of enquiries. Through our investigations we have the description of a male which is all we have at the moment relating to this person.”
The 55 year old was found dead in her home at around 7am on the morning of May 7th where her husband Ian was found suffering serious injuries.
Son Jason Hunter said his parents had no enemies.
Jason Hunter, Son: “Mum and Dad well I don’t think they ever hurt anyone and this tragic accidetnt happened to our family and it’s a bit surreal.”
He said it was hard for his family and father because of the sudden death.
Jason Hunter, Son: “If anyone knows anything or if anyone knows who did it, if they could please come forward. Our family’s going through it now and I don’t want other families to go through this.”
The Hunter family are still struggling to come to terms with this devastating tragedy. It’s especially hard for the grandkids who won’t be babysat by their grandmother anymore.
Any person who has any information is urged to contact Crimestoppers.
